Concept of evolution of the subtle, intangible planes

 

When we think of evolution we tend only to think in terms of man evolving from ape to modern day Homo Sapiens. This can and is debated to death with different religious views etc. I ask you to briefly put those thoughts to one side as I entertain the idea of evolution with relevance to consciousness and those subtle, intangible planes of existence.

Everything evolves, even a thought. A thought can evolve to the point where it is no longer just alive in the invisible mind stuffs, but can eventually gain enough momentum and enough gravity for that initial idea to create a physical effect and manifest.

 

The same can be said for the single human unit’s consciousness, and if we expand, the same goes for the human consciousness as a collective or a mass sum. I believe we still know far too little about our ancient past and the so called ‘facts’ we know are so varied that it leaves the average person confused, so they believe what they are taught in our educational institutions, which I am sad to say is flawed.
Whether we did evolve from ape or if there was a cross synthesis between two or more species/sub-species or whatever, evolution still played a roll.
Physical discoveries based on observation is the most basic way of learning. Through observing patterns and repetition in nature, our earliest ancestors took these discoveries to heart and implemented whatever system to use for the better of self or their community.
Even the systems that were based on their observations evolved. The system gets implemented as often as possible because it is seen as benevolent. Eventually the system evolves to the point where we become so use to it that it becomes common place and eventually over time the general population of the future generations may forget the reason for the initial system, and then the system becomes that unwavering truth that they have benefited from for generations.

 

Because that initial idea (which evolved into whatever system) has become so evolved and because it has done so slowly over many decades and generations, the community often does not see the small changes and cracks the system makes over time, not only to the physical life of the community, but also the mental and even emotional life of each human unit and the collective as a whole. Each unit interprets everything slightly differently. This obviously has consequences between individual human units and also similar minded units who congregate into ‘organizations’. So often these ‘organizations’ are at the heart of conflict, even though each unit within these organizations sits ever so differently on the scale of the true ideal that the organization centers itself around, even though the views of this future generation is based on the understanding of their elders/ancestors of that initial idea/system.
If the current generations are unaware and not conscious of the changes and cracks that every system is bound to produce (whatever it may be) and we continue blindly with the initial system because the result is easier to see because perhaps it is more tangible, then the cracks and changes on the more subtle planes (i.e Emotional and mental) will continue to grow. When the unseen forces/energies continue evolving in one way and the physical system doesn’t change to ‘counteract’ these new or different variables into the system and synthesize them practically then the physical form will eventually break…only to eventually reform and rebuild – such is the concept of evolution.

 

We have evolved physically to the point where we are authorities on this planet. We are in a place of power where we are able to change an idea, ideals and even realities in pretty significant ways. What prevents us at the moment, I think, is that the majority isn’t at the point of a mental evolution where we don’t only just concern ourselves with the individual unit, but also concern ourselves as a collective entity, that of a human consciousness. The majority has mastered existing in physical life but struggle on the emotional and mental sides of life. These subtler planes, I believe, are important as everything physical is born from the intangible consciousness or mental plane. Once enough human units have shifted from a very physical, egocentric state of mind to one that incorporates not only one of self, but also one that includes the collective, then one will see more of a positive change for humanity and eventually the planet. I feel that this is the direction of evolution for the human consciousness, from a dim self-awareness to one that knows what itself is as a fully functioning human unit, to one that knows that it’s development and the sustaining of not only the human unit, but humanity and the planet as a whole, lies in the expansion and evolution of the human mind.
Humanity’s crux is one of harmony through conflict. Think about it.

Right now

Right now,
I feel like being sucked up
out into a great abyss of existence.
Where I’m stretched so thin that all of me permeates the universe on every level conceivable.
I want to get a feel for truth.
I want to feel it on the tips of my fingers across light years of nebula and supernova.
I want to close my eyes and fall asleep to the feelings and sounds of existence.
As if it were water
so I can slowly sink and drown in what is.

What we are, what we have…

We are animals. We use words like “mammals” and “human” to attribute ourselves with higher qualities than that of other animals. We eat, sleep, drink and procreate just like all animals; so what is it that makes us human? As animals we are subjected to all the urges that animals have. Many of us react without much thought to these animal urges – just like the animals. We are no better than animals because we are animals.

I also believe we have been gifted with a higher consciousness, an awareness that has over-sight of decisions and consequences. It is not something that we are automatically privileged with, but I believe it takes time and action to make the connection between the higher consciousness and our physical, animal bodies, stronger. Our physical bodies have a dim consciousness of its own which I think is more responsible for survival in this physical existence. It is somewhat egotistical, but a necessity for survival.

I think it is easier to feed this dim, physical, animal consciousness as it is more influenced by our five senses as it is more concerned with our physical existence. If this physical/egotistical consciousness is fed and encouraged, then I can only deduce that our characteristics and manner would develop into one that is selfish and materially (or physically) concerned.

Our higher consciousness is there, unseen and somewhat imprisoned. It should be our ambition to find this connection, free and strengthen it, which will reinforce our individuality and within that wisdom shall be found. Whether we call it higher consciousness, spirit or soul it is there, waiting to enlighten us…

A new year, a new beginning…

A happy new year to my readers, I trust the last of your 2012 was fantastic and your 2013 is off to a positive start.

This past festive season has been an enlightening time for me. I cannot explain, but it truly feels as though I see things slightly more clearly. Throughout the year our experience and decisions somewhat accumulate and ofttimes we are unable to deal with them and give them their due attention. Sometimes it is hard to confront situations and people and we end up dismissing them and we convince ourselves that we will deal with it a bit later. These issues don’t get resolved and you will often find that it’s these issues that weigh heavy on your mind and anchor you down, preventing you from moving on – evolving.

What we need to understand is that life and existence is not stagnant. Everything keeps on going, there is always a movement and we need to be aware so we too can “move with the times” so to speak. Nothing is ever in the same place. The earth, solar system, even our galaxy is in perpetual motion, speeding through space – every moment different in time and space to the next, an evolution if you will.

It is the natural progression of life and we should also be striving to progress – better ourselves. To do this we must learn, act and evolve and this can only be done if there is nothing holding you back. Those issues that lay unresolved are lessons waiting to be learned. To truly learn a life lesson, I believe we must live out our conclusions or morals. This, I believe, leads us to enlightenment so we can be a more evolved being, one that is more than mere flesh and bone. Our existence and being is more than just a physical. We are  intellectual, sentient beings capable of infinite imagination and higher consciousness. This makes us more evolved than animal, not better, just more evolved.

I feel we should be striving for a stronger higher consciousness as opposed to satisfying our “animal conscience”, which I think is our physical, earthly body. We have a higher consciousness, which I believe can give us control over our conditioned minds. I think we need to be awakened to our higher consciousness, which I feel can be done by truly learning life’s lessons –  find the connection between everything and live your conclusion.

There is always a price –  a cause and effect. That price is our conditioned way of thinking, which often goes against the grain of society or our selfish, animalistic tendencies.  Are you willing to pay? To let go of your conditioned way of thinking, even if that means swimming against society’s current? That is often the price – popularity.

I hope you were all able to confront those issues that may have been haunting you in 2012, and may your slate be clean for 2013. A new cycle has begun and with it will come lessons…
